Administrative Office Management

Associate of Applied Science Degree
Program Description
Sioux City Campus

The Administrative Office Management program is an associate degree program that prepares students to assume positions as office managers, supervisors, or as assistants to top executives.

During the first year of the program, the student will develop skills for entry-level office employment. First-year classes emphasize technology, proofreading and editing, document formatting, filing, machine transcription, human relations, and computerized 10-key. Technology will play a big role in the expected 9 percent increase in administrative support occupations between 2006 and 2016. Therefore, the program also emphasizes word processing, spreadsheet, database, and presentation graphics skills using a Windows operating system.

During the second year, students will develop administrative skills necessary to participate as part of the management team. Office management personnel assist in planning, organizing, and controlling the information related activities and in leading or directing people to attain the objectives of the organization. They may handle a wide range of daily responsibilities including the supervision of support services. In the final semester of the program, students will complete a review course to prepare them for the Certified Professional Secretary exam.
